The site lies a block away from the Market and Van Ness intersection, an area up-zoned under the Market & Octavia Area Plan that pushes building heights to 400 feet on all four corners. The 35 units provided by the nearby 1 Franklin site will add to the thousands of residential units planned for the junction. More homes in the area will equate to more people, higher neighborhood energy, and less deserted sidewalks.

Obama became the country’s 44th president, SpaceX earned their space creds with the Falcon 1, and the fighting Philadelphia Phillies beat the Rays in the World Series. It was also the year where plans to redevelop the 1 Franklin Street property were submitted to the San Francisco’s planning department. Waylaid by the city’s byzantine approval process, 2007-09 recession, and property ownership changes, the project finally achieved momentum within the last year and today construction is in full swing.

Although the building’s forgettable facade, penned by Forum Design, expresses a cost conscious design ethos, the structure’s bones are being built with a strong reinforced concrete frame that will underpin and firmly support all eight stories. Real estate firm JS Sullivan, is both the developer and contractor for the project, and has currently progressed to the fourth floor, where jutting steel lattices of reinforced steel are being prepped for future concrete pours.
